WPS lands gov’t work

WPS Military and Veterans Health (WPS MVH) will take on more contract work for TRICARE, the federal health and benefits insurance for active-duty military personnel, retirees, and their families, after the U.S. Department of Defense awarded the TRICARE 2017 contract for the East Region to Humana Government Business. The East Region encompasses 30 states and about 6 million beneficiaries.

WPS MVH, part of Madison-based WPS Health Solutions, will partner with Humana on the contract, subcontracting IT support, claims processing, and customer service functions. The MVH unit already has two other TRICARE contracts.
